A campaign calling for the death penalty for child traffickers has recently gone viral on Chinese online social networks.

"I firmly suggest that authorities revise laws on child trafficking. I insist that child traffickers be sentenced to death while buyers be sentenced to life. Why should they be given a second chance when the children they harmed don't get any?" wrote the advocacy that was posted by countless netizens on Weibo and WeChat.

The advocacy began to circulate online roughly after a China Central Television report on May 30 revealed a child trafficking gang in Henan Province that bought and sold babies across the country. A total of 30 women and children from 26 deals were trafficked between February 2008 and April 2013.

Of the 37 suspects, only the prime suspect received a death sentence in the first trial, while the others were given up to 15 years in jail. Buyers involved in the case were sentenced to up to seven months in prison.

According to a survey conducted by news portal sina.com.cn, 88.3 percent of over 21,000 respondents were unsatisfied with China's crackdown on child-trafficking and 92.5 percent said that the same punishment should be imposed on both buyers and human traffickers to stop the crime.

China's Criminal Law states that human traffickers can be sentenced to death "when the circumstances are particularly serious," but most human traffickers were usually jailed for several years.

Do you agree or disagree that child trafficking should be a death penalty offense? Do you think death penalty deters child traffickers?

""Do you think death penalty deters child traffickers? ""

Yes. Those who are executed will never engage in child trafficing again. Guaranteed!
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Drug dealers are never given a 2nd chance, so it should be the same for child trafficking. 15 years Is less than what they would have got in the uk......is china going soft?
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

The problem with a death penalty is it can make the criminals more desperate and violent. They have nothing to lose by doing anything to avoid being caught. Lock them up with medical psychological help for a very long time.
